Subaru plans to bring a specially tuned BRZ to the United States.
Speaking with Automotive News, Subaru U.S. spokesman Michael McHale said that an STI version of the BRZ is coming to the States in “a couple years.” The car may not be billed as a standard STI model according to McHale, who says it might be a “tuned by STI” edition.
The recent STI Concept shown in New York (pictured) previews what we might see from a more hardcore BRZ, including a full body kit and a turbocharged 350-HP engine. Of course, suspension tuning and handling are upgraded on the car as well.
Subaru is looking to enhance the STI brand around the world. In the U.S., STI sells more full car packages than anywhere else in the world, even though the company only offers one car, the WRX STI. The brand also plans to phase out the Subaru Performance Tuning (SPT) arm which will be replaced by STI.
